Very delicious food. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at The Cuban.

I am here for my birthday and I was treated like a queen. Stacey, Chevon and staff did an amazing job in making it feel like my special day! The food was outstanding too! So happy I chose to come here.

The Entre's were great, but the burger was disappointing, for the price especially, more like a $15 burger than a $20+

A really good selection of drinks and the menu did give you the experience of Cuban food. The Cuba Laga (lager) was crisp and tasty.A nice drop. The four of us enjoyed our dinning experience at The Cuban.Top marks.

Mocktails were terrible. Keri juice as seen with our own eyes. Croquettes boring taste, mushrooms ok, fish tacos small and potatoes with cheese average. Floor was sticky and the whole place was being cleaned from the night before. Never go there again.

The food is amazing and consistently good every time. It’s well priced with options to please most people. My only gripe would be the service, it was a little unwelcoming/awkward. I would order Uber Eats from here again but not sure I would dine-in...

Mojitos were fantastic. The Cuban platter was disappointing. Lots of meat and carbs. Thought some salsa would have been nice and chipotle. Ribs not an easy sharing food and very dry. Waffle fries were really tasty!

It's a shame they put food and drink together because the food was wonderful. I'd have given it 5 stars! But the wine list is terrible. I didn't even finish my white wine, which, trust me, never happens! It's so easy to get good cheap wine in NZ so this could be fixed in a heartbeat. The service was really good. The staff were friendly and attentive, and made sure we were warm enough, putting a gas heater close by. The atmosphere is pretty good. The only thing that I found a bit off, was the music. They had a play list on very loud that was suited to a busy Friday night. As it was a very quiet Tuesday evening, something more in tune with a couple out for dinner together would've been appreciated. Overall, very pleasant though, and I'd go back. Thank you to the staff and chefs.

we had a table of 7. Everyone said they wouldn't go back because of the service. When we sat down not everyone was given a menu so we had to share for about 15 minutes until they finally brought more. We ordered drinks but 1 persons drink didn't arrive until ages after everyone else because the lady behind the bar got busy with walk up customers. 1 persons meal got forgotten about and everyone had finished by the time hers arrived. The lady who brought the food to the table would just bring a meal and plonk it infront of anyone at the table, she wouldn't announce what the meal was and then put in front of the correct person. every time she brought a meal we'd have to ask what the dish was and then she'd still just put it in front of anyone so we'd have to pass it round the table to the correct person. The restaurant wasn't even half full but the staff seemed disorganized and busy. The meals were not great value for money. 2 of is ordered the chicken salad, it was tasty but was mostly lettuce and hardly any chicken...or anything else.
